The main task of the Russian Geographic Society expedition on the research vessel 'Pavel Gordienko' Hydromet is to find radiation in air and water, Sea of Japan and the Kuril-Kamchatka region of the Pacific Ocean. The first stage of the expedition will last until May 20, the second – will begin in August or September 2011. The route runs from Vladivostok on the Sea of Japan between the Japanese islands of Hokkaido and Honshu by the Tsugaru Strait, and further along Kuril Islands to Kamchatka. 'The content of cesium-137 and cesium-134 in surface sea water, and at a depth of 50 meters is about 20 becquerels per cubic meter. At a depth of 100 meters level drops to 6 becquerels per cubic meter, at depths of 150 and 250 meters of man-made radionuclides were not found ", – said the chief flight minsk1.net Sevastyanov. In accordance with Russian norms of radiation safety for drinking water (sea water is not normalized) level cesium-137 content must be below 11 000 becquerels per cubic meter, cesium-134 – 7.2 thousand becquerels per cubic meter. Scientists also found in the air radionuclides iodine-131 and cesium-134 and 137 from the emissions from emergency plant. 'This is a small value, thousands of times less than the permissible activity in the air for the people ", – noted the official. First on the Kuroshio Meanwhile, Russian scientists were the first who measured the radiation levels at the northern boundary of the Kuroshio Current, which carries warm water from the tropics by Japan and then goes into the North Pacific for traveling to North America.

Each car has its own detractors and fans. The main argument ardent opponents of the car 'Honda Civic' in Russia is its low ground clearance. They believe that riding in a car with such a small landing difficult in terms of bypass various obstacles and parking. Supporters of the car, in turn, say that all these difficulties are caused by simple inability to drive and park carefully. Of course, the condition of the roads in our country much far from perfect, but nevertheless, it is not a reason to turn away from all amenities offered by the 'Honda Civic'.
Let's see what we can offer the manufacturers of the car. First, it sporty appearance. Rear wing posted, which greatly increases stability when driving at high speeds, but at the same time a little worse for review reversing. It is also necessary to note the unusual fog lights in a triangle and a hole form the main muffler. It should be noted that the appearance to some extent may vary depending on the country where producing the car. K three or four-door example hatchback produced in Japan is different from the five-door, made in the UK, mostly pronounced big-eyed lenses. We now turn to the main disadvantage 'Honda Civic' – a small clearance. Ground clearance of the car is only 15 cm, and if you make the protection to the bottom, it will be less by 2 centimeters.
Many will say that for urban driving conditions this is enough, but still you will have to keep strain to catch the bottom of the fear of 'lying politseyskkih' and other obstacles that would eventually lead to the fact that you will not feel a proper degree of comfort. A ride on the back roads here in general do not have to mention – not suitable for such a small clearance off-road. You can follow the advice of seasoned car owners and replace the standard rubber 'Honda Civic' on the rubber with a higher profile, thus increasing the clearance of 1 centimeter, but sacrificing a small loss of accuracy in the readings of certain instruments, such as the speedometer and odometer. We conclude the topic clearance and move on to the road performance 'Honda Civic'. Safety and comfort – these are the performance inherent in the different models, the eighth in a row, generation car 'Honda Civic'. The body is presented in three main versions: a four-, five-door and sporty version called Type R. The most impressive powerplant in the 200-hp Equipped with front-wheel-sports version of the 'Honda Civic' – Type R, which makes it possible to accelerate this car up to one hundred km / h in 6.6 seconds. In various versions of cars can be seen, and automatic and 6 speed mechanics. Engines of 1.8 liters. And with a capacity of one hundred and forty horsepower Mounted on two other versions of the car with sedan and wagon. The longest car of all the family – this is universal, though it is inferior to height and has a less roomy luggage compartment than the 'relatives'. Summarizing all the above, I can say with confidence that, in my view, the advantages of this car is much more than the minuses, but it is already doing findings to you. If you have plans to buy a car, something not talked vocal critics 'Honda Civic' – this car is certainly worthy of that about him to tell you.
